Galmudug President arrives in Mogadishu, a day after Khaire ouster


By Yunis Dekow

A delegation led by the Galmudug State of Somalia
leader Ahmed Abdi Kariye (Qor-qor) has this evening.
arrived in Somalia’s capital city, Mogadishu.

President Qor-qor’s delegation has been warmly welcomed
by MPs , senators , ministers , from the federal government
and other officials at Aden Adde international airport.

The visit comes barely less than three days after former
prime Minister Hassan Ali Kheire was voted out of office
through a vote of no-confidence motion with the lawmakers
accusing the government of failing to maintain security and
conduct democratic one man one vote elections on the
stipulated time.

Ahmed Qoor Qoor will meet Farmaajo as per his plan
The two leaders are also expected to discuss the appointment
of a new prime minister for the country after President Farmajo
named DPM Mahdi Mohamed Gulaid as the acting Prime
Minister after less than 24 hours the previous Prime Minister
was ousted.

Galmududug leader is expected to hold talks with Somali
President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo on the upcoming second
a phase of the Dusamareb conference between the federal
government and leaders of regional administrations.

President Qor-qor was backed by the federal government during
elections and was handed power on February this year by ASWJ
chief Sheikh Shakir Mohamed after he admitted defeat following two
days of a gun battle in Dhumasareb town of central Somalia.
